Three teams got playoff tickets
Kolkata Knight Riders became the first team to make it to the playoffs of the Indian Premier League this season. After this, the ticket of Rajasthan Royals was confirmed with the defeat of Delhi Capitals by Lucknow Super Giants. At the same time, after rain washed out the match against Gujarat Titans, Sunrisers Hyderabad also managed to reach the playoffs by taking 1 point. Now everyone’s eyes are fixed on the last team.

Chennai may be out
It is a do or die fight for the defending champion Chennai Super Kings team with Royal Challengers Bangalore. If the team loses by 18 runs or more here then it will be out. While chasing the target, even if RCB wins in 18.1 overs, Chennai team will be eliminated. If Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team wins, it will be able to directly qualify for the next round with 16 points.
